Formed in 2009, Trio Agogo are one of the few Australian groups performing the Brazilian styles of Choro and Samba. Their live show is a fiery display of one of the first true Brazilian instrumental music forms.
The group has performed from festival and conservatorium stages to the gritty back lane bars and botequims around Australia and South and Central America.
All members of the group have lived, studied and traveled in Brazil, bringing a wealth of knowledge and understanding to their music.
Their new recording “The story of Benjamin Constant” was conceived and written in Brazil and tells the story of the street where members of the group lived in Rio de Janeiro. Rua Benjamin Constant, a lively street in an inner suburb of Rio provides the backdrop and inspiration for the original compositions, which recreate the rich tapestry of Brazilian street life.
